COVID Vaccination Grant

Porterville College is now providing a $200 student vaccination incentive. Below is a quick FAQ that should answer any questions:

All students who provide evidence of receiving their full vaccination by November 1, 2021 will receive a $200 grant. All students are eligible, including those who received their vaccination(s) before the requirement was put into place. Payments will be issued after November 1.

What is necessary to receive the $200 vaccination incentive grant?

    ·
  • Submit proof of vaccination record to your KCCD app
  • ·
  • Complete the FAFSA https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa or CADAA, recommended
  • ·
  • Create your BankMobile refund selection option, https://www.vibeaccount.com/cardoffice/card/search/InitSearch.do

What is the required number of units needed to be eligible for the grant?

All students enrolled in non-credit and credit courses are able to receive the grant.

I am a dual/concurrent enrolled student. Am I eligible?

All students enrolled are eligible to receive the grant.

I am not able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine for personal or health reasons. Am I eligible?

Unfortunately, no. We are unable to provide a grant to unvaccinated students regardless of health or personal reasons. The funding is to assist in reducing the spread of COVID-19 through community vaccination.


Students who submit their vaccination status prior to these deadlines do not need to take any action to get their incentive check. The funds will be automatically deposited in the BankMobile account or, for those without a BankMobile account, you will need to create an account to receive your incentive. https://www.vibeaccount.com/cardoffice/card/search/InitSearch.do
